Friday the 13th of June kicks off the Currents New Media Festival in Santa Fe, New Mexico, which runs through June 29th.

Watch a clip of the work here.
Beaming Baudrillard, which takes its inspiration from the French theorist Jean Baudrillard and the Roycroft Furniture Catalog, combines video installation and sculpture to address themes of reproduction, translation, and transmission.
